So, what kind of cars does KSI drive? Well, he's got a few luxury cars in his collection, including a Rolls-Royce Wraith and a Porsche Cayenne. He's also got one more Porsche 718 Boxster, but KSI's most prized possession is probably his Lamborghini Aventador - he even made a music video on the car!

Who is KSI?
Born Olajide Olatunji and commonly known as KSI, he is a YouTube and social media phenomenon, particularly in the UK, who has amassed more than 23 million YouTube subscribers on his main channel. He is known for his FIFA, soccer, music, and comedy content. He is also a hip-hop artist and he released his debut studio album Dissimulation in May 2020. His second album All Over The Place, released in 2021, debuted at No. 1 on the UK Albums Chart.
Along with his solo success, he has also featured as part of the hugely popular YouTube group Sidemen. Sidemen (or simply SDMN, formerly The Ultimate Sidemen) is a group of seven YouTubers (KSI, Miniminter, Zerkaa, Behzinga, Vikkstar123, TBJZL, and W2S). The group was created on October 19, 2013. The name is an allusion to a term to refer to those who are "behind the scenes" and are much less noticed than the main people. Originally, Simon was a "side-man" to JJ and Tobi was a "side-man" to Josh. When the Sidemen channel was announced on May 16, 2016, the channel gained over 1 million subscribers within 3 days making it the fastest channel to achieve this feat at the time. At the time of writing it now has over 15 million subscribers
